I'd like to open an account but I can't find any name that isn't already
registered that even remotely resembles the name of any of my web sites.
I have other webmail accounts, so I have alternatives, but I'm curious
as to what people think about who might be doing this with Gmail; i.e.
speculators or spammers?

Good question. I hadn't but I just did and got no results.
For customer contact. It's easier for customers to remember and I get
better spam filtering with some of my web mail accounts.
I'm using gmx.com now and it's pretty good but there's still no option
for sending mail in plain text, even though users have been asking for
it for a couple of years now. I've inadvertently sent emails that look
like ransom notes, with numerous font and point size changes that didn't
show on screen when I was composing.

I'm not sure if this would fit-the-bill for what you need, but you can
always use Google Apps for your domain to have gmail
firstname.lastname@example.org (where "example.com" is your domain). I believe
this is still free. I use this for two of my domains (despite having
cPanel email available to me), because Gmail has an awesome web
interface, their imap service is really reliable, and (best of all) they
seem to know how to run a good spam-blocking service.
Can't answer that one, but you are probably aware that you can connect
gmail to your own domain and hence circumvent (somewhat) that problem?
I've done so for one of my domains, and it was a piece of cake to set up.

Well I remember before google made it publicly available, i.e. when it was
inviitation only, people were registering a ton of accounts and selling
Not that that probably has anything to do with your problem though really.
